Just a quick comment. I made meringue bones one year. If they break in half, as meringue can do, they don't look like bones anymore... they look like the private parts of a man. It was quite embarrassing as I took them to a school sponsored event for my son's elementary school. Stick with the ghosts!
I have made these meringue ghosts two years in a row and they always come out perfect! This has become my go-to meringue recipe. I might suggest adding a few drops of vanilla extract for flavor but that's optional.
I made it before Halloween to test it and held perfectly. It tasted sweet but not over-powering. I will be proud to serve these at my Halloween party later in the month! I hope other people try this and get the success I got. This was such a great idea I bet I couldn't think of that. I also tried the witches fingers and that was also very creative.

Maybe I have weak arms but this was impossible for me to whisk by hand. I only have a hand-held mixer so I had to use that for a good 15 minutes to get the mixture nice and fluffy. My sore arms were worth it though; these are soo yummy!
I've made meringue cookies a lot. I use different extracts and colors. I've never used the lemon juice I've always used the Crème of tartar. I want to try this one with black and make black cats maybe with Anise extract. Has anybody tried this. If it turns out for me I'll try and post a picture.
